An evaluation of detection function models used for estimating herbivore densities in tropical forests

Seven detection function models used in line transect sampling for estimating herbivore densities were evaluated using data from tropical moist deciduous forests. The data were collected from nine Wildlife Sanctuaries in Kerala during 1993 on the following species viz., elephant (Elephas maximus), gaur (Bos gaurus) and sambar (Cervus unicolor).
